EverGen Announces Optimization of Fraser Valley Biogas Results in Record Renewable Natural Gas Production
Dec 08, 2021
EverGen Infrastructure Corp. , Canada’s Renewable Natural Gas Infrastructure Platform, announces that the immediate enhancement and optimization projects at Fraser Valley Biogas Ltd. (“Fraser Valley Biogas”) in Abbotsford, BC., have resulted in record production in the month of September, supporting the growing demand for RNG in the province.
Fraser Valley Biogas has been supplying renewable energy for over a decade and previously produced approximately ~80,000 gigajoules of RNG annually - enough to heat approximately 1,000 homes for a year, at the time the facility was acquired by the Company in April 2021. In the short period since EverGen has owned and operated the facility, and despite the unprecedented high temperatures experienced in the Fraser Valley this summer, RNG production has improved significantly.
“Following the acquisition of Fraser Valley Biogas earlier this year, our team immediately began optimization activities that have resulted in an impressive increase in RNG production at the facility, with minimal capital required and well within our expected return profile,” says EverGen Co-Founder and CEO Chase Edgelow. “With the demand for RNG and requirement for low & negative carbon infrastructure continuing to grow, we are working with the Ministry of Environment to amend the facility’s permit to process agricultural and food waste at flows similar to other anaerobic digesters in the area. This will allow EverGen to roughly double our RNG production at Fraser Valley Biogas later in 2022. Because of the avoided emissions relative to traditional methods of dealing with agricultural and food waste, the RNG produced at Fraser Valley Biogas is carbon negative.”
Fraser Valley Biogas, a wholly owned subsidiary of EverGen, is the original producing RNG project in Western Canada and first project to produce RNG into FortisBC’s network, part of the North American natural gas infrastructure network. The facility combines anaerobic digestion and biogas upgrading to produce RNG, primarily by converting agricultural waste from local dairy farms. Fraser Valley Biogas also produces an organic liquid fertilizer that is used by surrounding farms to displace synthetic fertilizers. This micronutrient rich, odour free fertilizer has been a key part of many local farms’ fertility plans for more than ten years.
EverGen’s COO Sean Mezei joined Steve Darling from Proactive Investors to explain the record production at Fraser Valley Biogas.
